FROM THE WATER: Paintings from the Fish to Land series -
paintings by David Rose

This body of work has led itself from stripe studies to a
more retrospective abstraction, which merges geometry and
free flowing marks. His concern and direction has always
moved towards the lines and forms of Diebenkorn and Klee
but beneath that, there is always the search for an elusive
deep seated spiritual root.

JULY 30 - OCTOBER 29, 2008

venue: Nova 555 Second Street (x. Brannan) SF
